to the republican party, i would advise the republican party to take that with a huge salt lick. >> yeah. >> ashley, you were on the trail covering romney and there for the last days of his candidacy. do you sense now there is supposedly a come to jesus moment happening within the republican party, that the moderate wing will have a strong voice? >> well, i mean one thing you're seeing before the election, before the president won re-election and seemed like leaders in congress were going to be more willing to compromise, governor romney was sounding a bipartisan theme even during the election. even before, some people would argue the president has a mandate, some wouldn't, bipartisanship was what was persuading the most voters on the trail. after the election there's probably going to be more incentive to strike that note. >> or people will say romney failed with that message time to us to love to zoo lover, gummy bear aficionado and former speaker of the house newt gingrich. >> some would say romney failed by having too many messages but he hit his stride when he moved into bipartisanship. that w
economic plan. what? >> caller: yeah, what do mitt romney's advisers have to say about it. this is only the second time since fdr that a president has received 5% of 50% of the vote twice. the only other person is ronald reagan. the numbers are still being counted in the west coast so it will be bigger. obama has the bigger margin of victory than george bush did in 2004. and remember that george bush declared himself a mandate into how. >> stephanie: how long bigger do you think the poplar vote margin would have been if it weren't to hurricane sandy. obviously the popular vote would have been bigger. >> caller: no, it's clear. i wouldn't be surprised if we get to a four-point margin. this is how good this is. we are close if it expands to half a percent, which is doable with the ballots in california arizona and washington and oregon. president obamamitt romney will have around 47% of the vote. >> stephanie: how ironic tee hee. congratulations on all your rightness and smartness. >> caller: thanks very much. >> what universe is dick morris not part of the media. he's complaining about
that he means what he says when he talks about bipartisanship. to take an idea from governor romney and use it as an overall tax reform. >> yeah, i mean, the ultimate idea here is we want to extract more dollars from the wealthy as part of a shared sacrifice in entitlement cuts. what does it matter whether you label it a deduction cut or 39.6% tax increase? ultimately, you're getting more dollars from this very top group. in fact, this may even be more progressive than 39.6. i'm a little confused as to why there's so much opposition. maybe just because romney proposed it. >> plus, you're simplifying the tax code. that's really an important part of this. you're eliminating some of those special interest fights and loopholes that exist. >> and zerlina, let's face t the election is over. obama has won. just because it was a romney idea, does it make a bad idea? >> no, i'm not saying that anything that romney proposed is a bad idea. i'm saying that it is a fact that he proposed ideas without giving any details. we haven't even really heard any of the specifics behind this particular pla
think hurt romney. >> right. >> it seems to be -- >> ultimate compliment really. >> in a weird way, yeah. what do you think of her assessment that the whole focus on bain early on is what really put the guy in a situation he couldn't get out of? >> well, i think that's what some of the internal research showed, and what they couldn't believe, as you were just saying, was that the romney camp didn't respond to this because basically bill burton, who was the co-founder of priorities usa, said they thought any minute the romney campaign would have the opposite ad, where they would show guys who got jobs because of bain. people at sports authority or, you know, places like that that were supposedly helped out by bain, but that ad was never made, and, you know, it's baffling to people like burton about why they didn't respond, but when i talked to romney people early on in the campaign they thought bain was going to be a big asset. they were describing romney as a job creator, and they just didn't see this counter narrative really, and one of the people who made the ad, saul shore, is a great
for revolution. >> bill: yeah, right. >> we should all storm washington. >> bill: donald trump calling for revolution. >> demand that romney -- i'm not sure what we would be demanding. so macey's has -- macey's has his exclusive tie collection and so there is a petition now whether they sell frag rageses and ties and shirts and apparently he's some fashion icon. i didn't catch on to this until now. but a sign-on petition, close to 400,000 people saying look, macy's, you have to cut ties with this guy. he's a birther. he's a racist in many ways. and you just gotta -- you've gotta push him away. no response yet but what trump did do is yesterday afternoon seeing this petition, tweeted out go to macy's and buy my exclusive frag rankses and ties. he's feeding the beast. >> bill: couple of years ago in new york, i was walking up fifth avenue. i walked by this trump tower and i just said to carol let's go inside and see how gaudy the lobby is. sure enough, in the lobby they had this counter and they were selling donald trump -
was the vice president just abandoned the president. >> he ran against him, yeah. >> right. >> that was a tough moment. now the system was different then. if you came in second you became vice president. imagine the obama/romney situation in that sense. he and john adams were the great frenemies in life. they fell out over politics in the 1790s and came back together again. it's actually an interesting tale of redemption. they fundamentally disagreed about the most important things about the country, but they admired each other in the sense that they were both fighting in a cause. >> can we ask about sally hemmings? you write this, slavery was a real subject where it kept him from martialing his hope in the service of cause of reform. on one hand, big reformer. you talked about optimism. on the other hand, his actual life completely contradicted that. >> absolutely. >> people describe sally, that she was in love with him. oth others have said that was completely untrue, that she was a slave and in a position that she was going to do whatever it took to survive. there's a range of theories on th
bobby jindal? >> yeah, saying what you said. let's go to the politico playbook's executive editor jim vandehei. in the wake of mitt romney's loss, how are folks in the gop like jindal trying to reframe the party's agenda? using joe's words. >> well, good morning. bobby jindal called politico to offer his first thoughts on the election. and it's pretty interesting. he said the party has to stop being the stupid party and that they have to recalibrate pretty dramatically and stop being the party of big business, big wall street, big banks, big anything. and he said this dumbed down conservatism is killing the republican party. >> boy, i'll tell you what, man, that -- it's so great hearing him say that. of course, nicole wallace and i always were talking about, you know, nicole has said and i've repeated on this show all the time she said, let's stop having the debate on whether the conservative party or moderate party. let's stop being the stupid party. and i think jindal's right. and that's the thing that was so frustrating. why weren't we just as suspicious of big banks and big corpor
